This is part 1 of a 3 part series of Sebastian Grubinger from Vienna, Austria. He told us that he more or less accidently met a guy who was filming for ESPN latin america in Austria. They filmed some clips a couple of months ago which now turned into 3 short movies which are broadcasted in 12 countries.

Thanks to Red Bull for showing flatland to a big audience even if it's a slightly different style of riding. Check it out and enjoy the shows!
